COMMENTS FROM THE PASTOR:
We are so glad to welcome Will Kerley as a new member of our church. Brother Will has surrendered to the ministry and is scheduled to start classes at Fruitland Baptist Bible College in a few days. The Lord is opening doors for Brother Will and he is busy with speaking engagements in and around our area. Brother Will is also teaching a Bible Study for young adults and older teens on Wednesday evenings. If you would like to join with him, please let us know and you are welcome to come. Please be in prayer for Will as he begins his life’s ministry in service for our Lord.
We will be considering some men for the deacon ministry this coming Sunday morning. I hope you will pray for these men and all of the men who are currently serving. Pray for our Deacons and their families in order that the Gospel of Christ would be plainly and powerfully proclaimed from our fellowship here at First Baptist Church.
II Corinthians 9:15, “Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.”
My wife and I are guilty of watching “Fixer Upper” with Chip and Joanna Gaines. You know, where they find a house that needs a lot of renovation and they go in and fix it up. In some of the episodes of “Fixer Upper”, they have taken something that was very sentimental and incorporated it into the renovation and when the owners see their new home for the first time, they might see a song that one of them has written for the other etched into a plaque and incorporated into the décor. Then do you know what happens? They burst into tears. They are crying not because they are sad, they are crying because their heart has been deeply touched. They are crying because this plaque has more sentimental value than monetary value. It touches deep within the heart. Do you remember where you were when the Lord saved your soul? The kind of life you were living and the sin that had you enslaved? Then when you were born again and the life of Christ came into you and the love of God filled your soul and gave you something that money can’t buy, it is hard to express with words how you feel toward The Lord. This gift was given out of a great love you, and this gift was given at great sacrifice, the old rugged cross. How can you express it? What can we say? Our God is so wonderful!!! Who could give more? Who could love more? Who could do more? Oh, what a Savior!
John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
In Christ, Ricky
